and begging, he said i must ask you, mr. president, now is the time, i'm paraphrasing. he roosevelt to declare war and begged for 50 destroyers. >> sean: and roosevelt wanted to get in but was fighting a lot of pressure at home. >> the isolationists, the republican party for the most part, mccormick's newspaper in chicago, after world war i and since george, washington, left office saying no foreign anteinglements did not want any alliance. >> sean: so pearl harbor happens, churchill makes the trip ayos the pond. tell us about that christmas, that time. that moment. obviously the country is in chaos, turmoil. and we just heard churchill at the white house. >> i think it was the bleakest christmas around the world since the days of the plague. i mean this was hong kong fell on christmas day. >> sean: the world was really at risk in world war ii of falling. germany was on the move. you know, we had now we are fighting the japanese. we are now involved in world war ii. it was pretty perilous and in the bombing of britain, why don't you describe the courage that churchill showed his fellow country
the argument, it was deutsche bank saying there was a paradigm here. it begs this question. 2012 germany will reach their kyoto targets. the united states has pulled away. what other country has the envelope open this year will reach their course, and what was the economic lesson learned in terms of their success or failure as it relates to dramatically changing the way they produce-- >> look at germany and the scandinavian country which are the own people who have done like they're supposed to, their economies are doing pretty well, thank you. there are other countries who have abandoned completely their equipment, canada, they'll make a lot of money for the koch brothers pumping tar sand, so we can't help with the world problem, sorry. that's running into stiff resistence among canadians. there's resistence building up around the world and the polling data reflects it. even today rasmussen found 68% of americans thinks global warm something a serious problem. the exit polling data during the election found 41% of people based their vote largely or somewhat on the response to hurricane
it to mexican authorities. so that's what he did and that's what got him arrested. the parents are begging the obama administration to help save his son's life. we have the attorney for hamar here. >> good to be with you. >> greta: nice to have you here. why can'ty get him out of jail? what's wrong? >> okay. right now, there is a fliel mexico, trials start at certain points and there is different hearings, like in the united states of america. and we are ready to go with our experts and also we have motions and we have two injunctions for exclusion of evidence for violation of his constitutional rights. >> greta: when is this trial date? >> the trial date's been on. the next hearing's set for january 17. that date, greta, was moved, continued, from october 30 or thereabouts. the hearings were set for november 13 and 23 and they were continued because the mexican customs agent was transferred to another place. and we have to bring him in, the judge wanted to cross-examine and we said, of course. i said yes. so he will have to be brawlt brought in for cross-examination. >> greta: all right.
with who would like beg to differ. >> did we just blow through the -- what about the rest of the news? >> there's no news today. what do we have on the front of the post today, willie? >> this is terrible. >> all there. >> not good. >> my goodness. >> what about right to work? >> what about right to work? >> there's two big news stories to do. and senator mccain is going for senate foreign relations. >> that is interesting. that is interesting. john mccain wants to be on the committee so he can cross-examine susan rice. we'll see if that happens. >> fascinating. >> should the mets pay, mike, dickey? >> they should. they need him and their fan base needs him. they should do it. >> think the money that zach grir grinke just got paid, they need him. >> what do you think? >> they need him. absolutely. >> how are the mets doing? >> happily, it's off-season. >> mika cannot believe what's happened to the segment. >> i'm embarrassed. >> this was a good rehearsal. >> i forget we were on tv. >> boom! >> you want me to tell you about the fiscal cliff? >> you get that extra half hour to work thin
of the policy, and i was told that there was not one written down anywhere. so that of course begs the question, how do you violate a policy that isn't in existence? so that's why when i have seen the polts that wicy that was haa few days ago, i'm not really confident that that might be all that legit considering i've asked for it twice. >> they say you repeatedly violated the company's policy. did you answer a lot of people on facebook or just these two times? >> no, sir. it was just those two times. >> this is highly unusual. have you had any other problems with management or anything like that that would cause them or does this just come right out of the blue? >> no, sir. i've had no problems. i was told on the day that i was fired, i asked my boss at the time, haven't i been an exemplary employee? that's exactly what i asked. and he said, yes, you have. and then i said, am i specifically being fired for these -- for this facebook post? and he said, yes, you are. so that left no room for doubt for my reason for termination. >> were these racist comments on facebook in your opinion? >> i woul
, begs to question to replace with whom? he did. i think he regretted it. john eisenhower told me that after the u2 was shot down, he went to his father on the plane to the paris summit about to collapse, the paris summit, and said to him, dad, you should have fired that guy, and ike blew up and basically said i'm the president of the united states, but it was a little defensive about it because, you know, he probably should have gotten rid of dulles. they are clearer in retrospect than they are at the time. ike was a great manager, but he was arguably a little slow to get rid of people. i think not in world war ii, no problem with sacking generals in world war ii, but maybe a little slow in his own administration, at least in the second term. this is one squishy area in his presidency. i spent a lot of time on it. my long study of intelligence on the outside, amateur at it, but presidents think you can snap your fingers, and the cia does miraclous things. it doesn't work that way. eisenhower did understand that. he was reasonable about this. this is all highly relevant because ri

people, begging for money. i think you spend maybe one- third to one-half of your time asking people for money. that should not be the main objective of our job. we should be doing the job for the people instead of worrying about raising money. i do not know what the answer is. maybe limiting the terms of the campaign, i do not know what it is. you cannot limit the funding because of the first amendment. it is gone way beyond the pale. i think -- we have state representatives that are spending three-quarters of a million dollars for house in indiana. we have gone beyond where we should. >> in addition to your long service, you have been on foreign affairs. >> 30 years. >> a somewhat early association was with jesse helms. how did that alliance come together? let's start with that part of the story. >> i was always a strong anti- communists. i never liked fidel castro. i became chairman of the subcommittee on western hemisphere. i worked with some of my cuban- ileanaan friends, ke ros-lehtinen and bob menendez and we worked hard to put sanctions on castro to try to bring that regime d
begs a question. the u.s. has actually spoken of the move of chemical weaponry before, but this, officials are saying, is different. tell us why. >> well, it's different because the intelligence information that is coming out, the data, shows moving apparently these weapons or supplies, and they have done that before, but the way they are doing them, it's different, and it's kind of a new activity, i guess you could call it, which might indicate some type of move toward deploying the weapons. it's a little murky, of course, right there. you heard secretary clinton not wanting to get into intelligence issues, as you can imagine, but there is a heightened concern, and that is one of the reasons that when she was asked about it during this brief -- during this presser in prague, she was very, very serious in her response. >> yeah. no. i heard earlier that they tend to keep the chemical -- the chemicals separate from the delivery systems, the rockets, the mortars, and it looks like they are bringing the two together, which is worrying, but the syrian government playing it all down.
lauz but born with an . >> you know, i beg to differ, mr. president. to me, i understand the use of its is a weapon but to me the real problem isn't the debt ceiling. it's the debt. the debt is the problem. you know, to have an unlimited amount of money to call upon is too much power power for one person. it's always in our country been about checks and balances but i think this administration just wants more checks and no balancing of the checkbook. that isn't the kind of check and balance that i think the people that wrote the constitution had in mind. now, let's look at it a different way, when we think of, you know, some good entertainment, there's, you know, bob hope, the road to morocco, the road to singapore. i don't think that we want to have a movie someday called the road to the weimar republic because bob hope was in the old movies. there's no hope in that new movie and i think this issue really has to be discussed. now i understand there's issues about compromise and everybody has heard that the president and the democrats won the white house. i understand that but the debt
of change. 2013 is coming. we can't have the same issues. it's not supposed to be fair on everyone. so i beg you, let's try something different. [applause] >> how about the female speaker from the northwest? anybody from the northwest? yes. >> whatever we do, i try to think different -- >> your name. >> i am anthony dames friend northwest. whatever we do, trying to pick something different in so many places is difficult, especially when there's more important things to focus on. [applause] >> okay, time is slightly against us. i now need to call in order to conclude the debate from the northeast, mr. matthew wilson. [applause] >> thank you, mr. speaker. transport has become a necessity. we use it to get educators, to get health care and to get employment. in recent years, transport it backwards. crisis have rocketed in the liability has made young people's lives are difficult. today we have heard that cost is the biggest issue for young people. statistics have shown that 16 to 18-year-olds the other transport fares are too high. to put them into context, that is more than double the populati
economy, aren't adversely impacted because people can't do their jobs. >> so that begs the question, hall. how are other countries preparing for this really precarious situation and one in which they really have no control. >> well, martin, there's not much they can do to prepare. what will happen, if the fiscal cliff turns out to take place, is that we'll start to see the economy beginning to slide. the first thing that has happened already is that a lot of small businesses and other companies have been holding back on spending, and on hiring people. because they're worried about the tax rate increase. but starting in january 1st, we're going to start seeing things like payroll taxes going up, we're going to see other taxes starting to come into place that will be very difficult for some people. but that's only the beginning. in february, we're going to have to deal with the debt crisis. and the debt ceiling. and that's going to be an issue that will make the economy even more unstable. and by may and april, we're going to start to see things like estimated taxes increase and the governm
we're begging the mexican government, first of all, to look at this case. if they will just examine this case. their own military has sent a letter saying this gun is not on the restricted list. i'm asking that the mexican government would use prosecutial power to look at it and let him go because he's totally innocent of the crime he's been charged with. >> gretchen: olivia hammar, a mom in pain and hoping her son can be home before christmas. thanks. we'll continue o follow this story. >> thank you so much. >> gretchen: brand-new information just coming in about adam lazy -- lanza and his mother. the mother's confidante and his first tv interview next. >>> the government put aside billions to help sandy victims. you'll hear where some of the money is actually going. how about alaska casting line, marching band playing ] [ male announcer ] the rhythm of life. [ whistle blowing ] where do you hear that beat? campbell's healthy request soup lets you hear it... in your heart. [ basketball bouncing ] heart healthy. great taste. mmm... [ male announcer ] sounds good. it's amazing what s
up under most of the proposals. >> but this all begs the question of a great example this whole fiscal cliff the conversation we're having right here around the table about the simplification of our tax system. we laid out back during the campaign was basically a 20% flat tax across the board and gets away from all of these exemptions and all of the quite frankly you having to have two cpas and a lawyer to be able to do your taxes. and that's where washington really needs to be focused when we talk about what do they really need to be doing up there talking about spending obviously and talking about how you simplify the tax code in this country. allowing that -- the foreign dollars that are raised offshore to come back in here at a relatively low tax rate. to be able to drive the economy of this country. that's what they need to be talking about instead of the -- >> the only people that want a complicated tax code are the lobbyists. people may argue over the end rate but --? the current administration wants a complicated tax code, too, because the more you keep it complicated, t
linda was begging homebuilders to hire sfrunlts the job corps program. >> there was nothing going on. >> now they're in high demand and they know it. >> there's a resurgence in construction, so i know this is the place to be. >> housing starts climb to an annualized rate after falling to a low of just around half a million in 2009 when the industry and the trade were decimated. >> over 2 million workers left the construction industry, and most of those are not coming back, so we have a great need to have skilled workers. >> with instructors from the nonprofit home building institute these students learn plumbing, weatherization, painting, all the construction skills you would see on a residential or commercial site. so the big question is why did all those workers who left not come back? well, remember, this housing recession has been going on for almost five years now and a lot of them have retrained into other careers. another point to make that is very important, if we go over the fiscal cliff, not only will the housing recovery come to a grinding halt, but programs like this one,
mint's departure from the senate, begs the question is the end nigh for conservatives? let's bring back ari melber, perry bacon, joel sawyer. joel, let's start with you. senator demint's departure has many implications, one of them the influence of outside forces, outside forces, the conservative movement. outside forces of the conservative movement, rather than the leaders themselves. "washington post" pointing out, quote, demint's decision marks a monumental change from a not so long ago era when abandoning a prime perch in the senate to head a think tank would have been unthinkable. but the past decade has shown influence that figures outside elected office, whether tea party leaders or antitax advocates grover norquist can have on the conservative movement. joel, does demint's departure mean that we're going to see an even stronger push by outside groups like the heritage foundation? >> well, you know, i dispute the hypothesis a little bit. outside of what? i view it all as part of one bigger, larger conservative movement. whether it's the heritage foundation or some of the other conservative
and demanding closure of guantanamo beg for years and years but no one, and none of these do-gooder's talks about human rights in iran. where are these good people? those good people who talk about human rights in secular regimes in the middle east have totally forgotten us. i have an idea of why this is. i believe that many of them are communists. [laughter] yes,they still are even after the end of the cold war, they are communists. the only side with the enemies of the united states. they believe that the enemy of my enemy is my friends of the islamic republic of iran is critical to the united states, then they are a friend of me teaching at berkeley. just to mention one of the liberal institutions. that? [laughter] >> was pure accident. that is such a shame but use of the cold war. try to engage some of the people who showed the united states government during the cold war how to wage cultural warfare. not only the people who manage to make "dr. zhivago" to a movie. why is there no iranian "dr. zhivago?" you have to wage war against not only those who are not your enemies but opponents o
. i debated and reasoned with my colleagues and now i beg you, do not let the year end without ending sequestration. i urge passage of this measure. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back. the gentleman from maryland, mr. van hollen. mr. van hollen: thank you, mr. speaker. i want to say to my friend the chairman of the budget committee, is the mike on? thank you. thank you, mr. speaker. the -- at the outset i want to say to my fend the chairman of the budget committee, i have great respect for him and i hope he won't take it toe wrong way but i'm glad to have you back and look forward to actually working with you next year. i actually hope that we'll be able to work in a bipartisan way starting right now, unfortunately, that doesn't appear to be the case and we are engaged here in the house on this floor today in what has become a ridiculous political stunt which will take us much closer as a country to going over the fiscal cliff. we're wasting valuable time. the speaker should be engaged with the president of the united states in negotiations rather than having walked aw
